Professional Certificate in Social Development
London, UK


Social development is a key priority of the UN's Post 2015 Sustainable Development Goals. The 2015 Commission on Social Development stated that vulnerabilities across the board are intensifying and that it is ultimately the poorest that are bearing the brunt. 

Course Overview

The importance of sustainable social development to economic prosperity, international security and community well-being is well documented. This year, the UN noted that 80% of the global population has no access to comprehensive social protection. This limited progress of the MDGs demonstrates the critical need for greater awareness, funding and leadership to tackle issues such as lack of equal access to education and health provision.

Throughout this programme, participants examine how such topical areas can be integrated into organisational and policy frameworks in a sustainable manner. Expert trainers in the field will cover the current international frameworks, initiatives, and best practice, to inform discussion and the analysis of case studies. Detailed knowledge of how to integrate relevant issues such as gender, as well as how to engage society in the policy-making process, will be analysed, followed by monitoring and evaluation mechanisms that are crucial for governments to effectively monitor progress and implement meaningful change. This combination of knowledge and skill development will provide participants with the ability to improve social access in their organisation and community.

This is a specialist training course leading to a Level 5 Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Certificate in Management and Leadership. Upon completion of this week-long course and subsequent successful completion of CMI written tasks, the successful candidate will be awarded a Level 5 CMI certificate in Management & Leadership showing the CMI units achieved. The CMI is the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. The professional qualifications offered by the Institute are internationally recognised and sought after. In addition, the successful candidate will receive a transcript from the International Centre for Parliamentary Studies certifying the specialisation in Social Development.
